Since it is AmiguruMay, I took a day off from doing the things I should have been doing and made a little sea turtle.
The pattern is called Green Sea Turtle and is found in the eBook Amigurumi Wildlife Adventure by Iralia Gray and Irene Strange.
This is not the color palette called for in the pattern, but I was working from my stash and I think it still came out super cute.
A straight time lapse of the full making of this turtle would’ve been way too long and boring, so I just filmed bits and pieces. Here’s the Instagram Reels version:
And here’s the “full” version on YouTube:
As for the details, I used La Mia Cottony Minis, 22g of the light green and 12g of the teal, some 10 mm safety eyes, and it’s stuffed with yarn ends, old swatches, and some spinning remnants. Head to tail measures 7in, widest point fin to fin is 9in, and tallest point is 2.5in. I was able to start and finish it all on Wednesday.
